Hi, I need help on restoring whatsapp messages. On my whatsapp chat setting, it is shown that my messages backup are created on a daily basis to iCloud - hence, showing the last backup date reflected as 7 February 2016. However, on my iCloud setting - it is shown the last backup date was in June 2015.I will like to restore or view my whatsapp messages backdated in June 2015 for an important chat log that was later deleted accidentally in late 2015. Am I able to restore/view the old messages in 2015; and go back to the latest whatsapp backup created yesterday again after which? Thank you! (I'm on iOS 8.1.3) iPhone 6, iOS 8.1
Quite a long post here. In short, this user wants to view whatsapp messages backed up in iCloud in June 2015. Generally speaking, when you back up data with iCloud or iTunes, surely, you cannot access and view those backed up data on iPhone. If you restore the whole backup data to your iOS device, you will erase other data on iDevice. So is there any other way to restore whatsapp messages on iPhone? Definitely yes. Here I have a method to help you view and restore whatsapp messages from backup on iPhone easily.
In order to view and get back lost whatsapp messages from backup on iPhone, what you need is the help from iFonebox, which is a professional iPhone WhatsApp data recovery tool to help you recover deleted or lost text messages, whatsapp messages, notes, contacts, etc, from iPhone or iPad. Also, if you have an iTunes or iCloud backup for lost whatsapp messages, you can also view and restore them from backup selectively via iFonebox. So cool. Here, I will show you steps to view and restore whatsapp messages from iCloud backup on iPhone.
It is necessary to download and install iFonebox on your computer. There are two versions accessible: Windows version and Mac version.
